    Poached pears are always a lovely, simple ending to an elegant dinner. The Grand Marnier scented creme anglaise puts this version over the top.

      This is good warm as well as chilled. I didn`t serve it with the custard sauce. Trying to keep the calories down. I did use my vanilla lavender sugar in place of the vanilla bean and sugar.
